FEATURE
Amanda Barge is a first-term Monroe County Commissioner. After winning the 2016 Democratic primary, she went on to win in last November’s general election despite the Republican Party’s statewide sweep. A licensed, practicing social worker and therapist, she’s already made news in her leadership roles in Rise to Run, a national effort to get more women on the ballot, and in the local Opioid Summit. Barge finds social work and serving on the county commission to be similar jobs. She joins Michael Glab on this week’s edition of Big Talk.

VOICES IN THE STREET
This week’s edition asks Bloomington residents neighbors how they feel about all the construction in downtown Bloomington.
